Bolivia's Morales Says He Has Spoken with Peru about "Megaport" Projects

LA PAZ - Bolivian President Evo Morales said he had spoken with Peruvian counterpart Ollanta Humala about potential projects to convert Peru's Pacific ports into "megaports" capable of handling large export volumes.

"We're very hopeful that some Peruvian ports will become megaports for the export of millions and millions of tons (of cargo) to other continents, not only to Europe but especially to Asia," Morales said in a speech Tuesday.

Morales discussed the subject with Humala while the two were in Argentina for President Mauricio Macri's inauguration.

Bolivia's head of state, who has proposed to Peru and Brazil that the three nations work jointly on a transcontinental rail project, urged multinational construction companies to form consortiums for this purpose.

Landlocked Bolivia uses Chile's Pacific ports for its imports and exports, but Morales' administration has complained repeatedly about problems with the services at those terminals and said his country has decided to invest in Peruvian ports.
